Color, Color and More Color

My husband and I had always planned to travel to New England for the "Fall Color". Now that we live in Northeast Tennessee, we don't have to travel very far to see the most gorgeous display of turning leaves around. This week we took a drive to Asheville, NC (about an hour from Fox Manor) and were not disappointed. If you want to catch this great show, you better hurry.

Our guests this weekend said that they can get their best views from our front porch.

What Are You Doing for Halloween? How about Witches Wynd?

Exchange Place needs no props after dark for a spooky atmosphere, with its shadowy corners of ancient log buildings where storytellers wait to relate chilling tales of the past. Guests assemble at the barn, divide into five groups, each of which is led by a lantern-bearing host to hear all of the five stories wind and through scenes relating to the story just heard. Mark your calendars for Oct 22/23 : 8:00 p.m.

Autumn weather in Tennessee can be cool enough to bundle up and windy enough to enhance the evening. Hope to see you there!'

Jonesborough's 2010 National Storytelling Festival Huge Success Again

Almost 40 years ago, a high school journalism teacher and a carload of students heard Grand Ole Opry regular Jerry Clower spin a tale over the radio about coon hunting in Mississippi. And the teacher, Jimmy Neil Smith, had a sudden inspiration: Why not have a storytelling festival right here in northeast Tennessee?
On a warm October weekend in 1973 in historic Jonesborough, the first National Storytelling Festival was held. Hay bales and wagons were the stages, and audience and tellers together didn’t number more than 60. It was tiny, but something happened that weekend that forever changed our culture, this traditional art form, and the little Tennessee town.

The Festival, now in its 38th year and acclaimed as one of the Top 100 Events in North America, sparked a renaissance of storytelling across the country. To spearhead that revival, Smith and a few other story lovers founded the National Storytelling Association. If you missed it this year, make plans to attend next year's event the first weekend in October. As all our guests at Fox Manor this weekend told us, "You will not regret it!"
